About Atlantic Airways
Atlantic Airways is the national airline of the Faroe Islands, operating international passengers services from its headquarters at Vagar Airport.
Atlantic Airways flies to the following destinations including Vagar, Reykjavik, Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Chania, Billund, Bergen, Barcelona and Aalborg. Atlantic Airways also operates charters for Danish tour operators to destinations such as Italy, Croatia, France, Scotland, Norway and the Czech Republic, out of Copenhagen Kastrup and Billund airports.
The airline was established in 1987 and 1988 Faroese people were able for the first time to fly from Vagar to Copenhagen with their new Faroese airline company. Since 1997, Atlantic Airways have been flying to Aarhus and Billund in Denmark.
Atlantic Airways’ network consists of the NORTH routes, the Denmark routes and the SUN routes, the latter being very well received with many passengers choosing to fly directly from the Faroes to sun and summer in southern climes.
In 2007, Atlantic Airways was listed on the Iceland Stock Exchange.
“The Faroe Islands are more accessible and more affordable than ever before. Atlantic Airways serves a record number of destinations and the fact that SAS has entered the marked with their route between Copenhagen, has opened the marked and has attracted the attention of the foreign eye. Furthermore, there is an increase of domestic demand,” said Jákup Sverri Kass, CEO at Vagar Airport - International Airport Review

UK's Atlantic Airlines switches main hub to East Midlands
West Atlantic UK Ltd, the UK division of European cargo operator West Atlantic Group, has relocated its main operational hub from Coventry Airport to East Midlands Airport.
The freight specialist said in a statement the move was driven by a need to find increased space to accommodate its Atlantic Airlines (UK) (NPT, Coventry) unit's growing fleet of B737 freighters (six B737-300(F)s and ten B737-400(F)s) and the fact that many of West Atlantic’s customers are based at East Midlands Airport.
"We had outgrown our Coventry facility as it could no longer meet the demands and needs of our business," Nigel Hiorns, Managing Director for West Atlantic UK Ltd, said. "A new base is required due to the rapid expansion of our fleet, and our in-house maintenance capabilities especially as we prepare to launch new converted B737-800 freighters in February 2018.”
As such, the firm said it has leased 4,000 sqm of hangar space at the Leicestershire airport to be closer to its key customers, DHL Express and Royal Mail.
West Atlantic also offers aircraft maintenance services and aircraft leasing which will benefit other cargo operators that are located at East Midlands Airport.
This summer, Atlantic will fly to Crete, Barcelona and Mallorca, and from late December through January also to Gran Canaria. Atlantic Airways will from 1st of April 2015 improve the exclusive benefits and awards of the EuroBonus programme offered to its customers. One of these improvements imply that EuroBonus members will earn "Basic Points" when travelling with Atlantic Airways. Travellers flying with Atlantic Airways will earn Basic Points, which go towards strengthening their EuroBonus membership, based on ticket type and travelling frequency. Depending on the amount of “Basic Points” you earn, your membership can be upgraded to either Silver, Gold or Diamond level.
Atlantic Airways announced a significant set of financial results with an increase in passenger numbers and new destinations
267,000 passengers flew with Atlantic Airways in 2015, which was a record year for the carrier. This is an increase of about 30,000 passengers compared with 2014 when 237,000 people flew with Atlantic Airways. This is an increase of 13 per cent. Atlantic Airways’ network consists of the NORTH routes, the Denmark routes and the SUN routes, the latter being very well received with many passengers choosing to fly directly from the Faroes to sun and summer in southern climes.
This summer, Atlantic will fly to Crete, Barcelona and Mallorca, and from late December through January also to Gran Canaria.
During the high season, there are more than 40 departures from the Faroes to the various destinations, and during the low season, just over 20 departures. Atlantic Airways aims to continually provide good offers to Faroese travellers, and the company wants also to be an active player in the development of the Faroese tourist industry as the cheaper fares draw visitors from abroad to the Faroes.
